Hahaha you guys got me there. I'm still young so im just having my fun i guess. Thanks for all the feed back everyone. I'm planning to pick up 2 front windows for $100 and try to bargain for $75 and just swap it out and get my ticket signed off and repeat if anything. [I'm picking the windows up from the dismantling place from where i get the JDM headlights. He has a couple of pairs of KA8 and TONS of KA7 so PM me if intrested. I've been lagging on everyone else on them, havent had much time to be on the forum to make sales just been using to get help and advice for my car.]

Tisk, tisk! Glad I'm too damn old to still be doin' that kind of stuff. You're playing with fire (literally) blazing up in your car and with front window tint. Take Jim Carrey's advice. It's free.

In 14 yrs of having my windows light tinted all the way around, l've only been pulled over for it once-and I also live in Cali. Cop gave me a choice-either replace missing front plate or strip off tint.

Guess which one I chose?

Let us know how the window swap goes. And you can pm me if you get stuck trying to replace the windows. All's you need is a phillips head, and a 10mm socket wrench with an extension. And if you are going to go through all of that you should put some grease in your channel runs while your in there. I picked up a tube of Honda grease from the dealer for $25. And quit driving around fucked up, it's not safe and dui's are expensive and can ruin your chances of getting a good job!

I'm all about hot-boxing it, but with illegally tinted windows, and your car obviously already has a reputation? G2BMC!!! Stick to the back roads man! G2BMC!!!

in hawaii its totally different... they get really mad with you tint the back window because they high beam your ass when they pull you over so they can see what youre doing inside the car... if you have the back window tinted dark they dont know if your getting a shot gun ready for them.

See, that actually makes sense. Generally the police's concern with tint is that it obstructs their view into your car when they've got you pulled over. It's for their own protection. They could give two shits about safety concerns or whatever else. The police in Bethlehem, PA are infamous for checking your tint with some special device and making you scrape it off on the spot if it blocks any more than 13% of sunlight. Therefore, I don't fuck with tint.

Actually to clarify, it used to be that way. Here are the current regs. enacted as of January 1, 1999

HOW DARK CAN WINDOW TINT BE IN CALIFORNIA?

Darkness of tint is measured by Visible Light Transmission percentage (VLT%). In California, this percentage refers to percentage of visible light allowed in through the combination of film and the window.

Windshield: Non-reflective tint is allowed on the top 4 inches of the windshield.
Front Side Windows: Must allow more than 70% of light in.
Back Side Windows: Any darkness can be used.
Rear Window: Any darkness can be used.

HOW REFLECTIVE CAN THE TINT BE IN CALIFORNIA?

Similar to sunglass lenses, some tinting film contain metallic elements that help in reflecting incoming light and reducing the glare and heat generated by visible light.
Front Side Windows: Must not be more reflective than a standard window.
Back Side Windows: Must not be more reflective than a standard window.

OTHER CALIFORNIA RULES AND REGULATIONS

Restricted Colors: The tint color(s) of RED AMBER BLUE are not legal by state law.
Side Mirrors: Dual side mirrors are required if back window is tinted.
Certificate Requirements: Manufacturers of film do NOT need to certify the film they sell in the state.
Sticker Requirements: No sticker to identify legal tinting is required.
Medical Exemption: State law does NOT allow medical exemptions that would allow you use special tint.*

* there are specific provisions for use of temporary shade devices which cannot be used after dusk (night time)


Hey Dannyboy, don't be an ass and drive drunk, how would you feel if some drunk driver kills someone in your family, say your mom, dad, etc. may be even a baby sibling.

mmm....citations. i got bunch o' tickets back in the day. no more for me, i've had my share. but really though, i dont know the exact percentage but my girl got 20 in the front and 15 in the back with no problems. i dunno how she does it, maybe cuz she's cute...idk. but basically they dont want dark ass tint in the back cuz they cant see you when they have they spotlights pointed in your cabin, and your front windows cant be tinted cuz they think you might be pointing a shot gun at them, or getting a shot gun to point at them
